Thousands of allottees in Greater Noida have protested against the authority's decision to extract money from them for distribution among farmers as hiked cash relief and save real estate projects.
On Sunday, the federation of RWAs held a meeting at the community hall in sector Gama 1 and decided a delegation will meet authority chairman Rama Raman on Monday.
The Allahabad high court, while hearing land acquisition cases of 38 villages, had ordered the authority to give the farmers 64% additional cash compensation and 10% of developed land. The order means an additional burden of Rs 9,500 crore.
"We have decided to recover the money from builders (group-housing projects), individual (residential) plot allottees, besides owners of built houses and institutions, whom the authority had allotted land, including those in Noida Extension," said authority chairman Rama Raman.
Builders have agreed to pay up because their projects are at stake. But allottees are up in arms. "It's because of the flawed policies of the authority that such a mess (of land acquisition) has been created. We will not allow ourselves to be burdened," the allottees said. The allottees also said the authority should have consulted them before effecting the hike.
